Is aids a disease of gay people?
AIDS affects all people.
Only a minority of gay people have AIDS. AIDS is a disease EVERYONE has to worry about. AIDS is NOT a gay disease. Women can pass it on to women, men can give it to women, men can give it to men. Sex is NOT the only way to transmit the disease. It doesn't matter if you're straight, gay, bi, lesbian, transgendered, WHATEVER. YOU are still at risk for AIDS.

The first observed cases of HIV were gay men, so people once believed gay men started the disease.
AIDS does not have the ability to make one feel pregnant. It is only sickness. Gay people and bisexuals are just like any Heterosexual person and do not wish for the life threatening disease, AIDS. More straight people than gay people have AIDS, due to unprotected sexual intercourse or touching AIDs infected blood with an open cut upon the skin.
The possibility of spreading AIDS is no different for gay people than it is for straight people. If the infected bodily fluids of one person get inside another person's body, the virus can be transmitted. The two main ways of spreading the HIV virus that causes AIDS are: unprotected sex (straight or gay) sharing of syringes
Liberace was gay, yes, and he did die from complications from AIDS, yes. AIDS is not an occupational hazard of gay people however. AIDS is a disease that almost all people who are infected with HIV develop eventually, if not controlled by drugs. In 2005, half of newly diagnosed HIV infections were in gay men. That means that half of the cases were in other people, e.g. straight people. Straight people are just as likely…

Simply because the disease was first noted among gay communities, leading people who dislike homosexuals to refer to it as "the gay plague," in some cases because they believed it to be a punishment inflicted on those whose lifestyles they believe to be in some way wrong or ungodly. Medicine became aware very early on that AIDS could be spread just as easily amongst heterosexuals, but to this day large numbers of ill-informed people believe…
Gay people, like other people, get HIV by having sex with another person who is HIV infected. People also get it by sharing needles used for injecting illegal drugs. The notion that HIV is a gay disease is just a stereotype. Anyone who has sex or shares needles with someone who has HIV or AIDS can get it, regardless of their sexual orientation.
